  • Fantastic beach, nice sea, nice place, nice people and nice bar very equipped and well stocked. You can take sunbed and umbrella and take a shower to take off the salt off. TO get there it's a bit complicated especially for the strictly paid parking but it's from the common not of the beach. There are some steps to do but it's worth it.

  • This beach is a scenic place good for selfies and photo opps with the rocky tiny island with the church in the background. Not a typical sandy beach. Gravel ground.  more »
